    Thinking of you at this sad time as you mourn the loss of your Mother.
    To Judy’s boys & especially to Millie & Beth as you mourn the passing of your Grandma Kirk so close to the passing of Pa Kirk we send you much love. xx
    Grandma was as you say a cheerful, friendly person & I have beautiful memories of big family events when you were young & Marion was there. Also as you say Grandma was a fighter but is at peace now. xx

  8. I remember Marion and Doug most for their warmth and great sense of humor. I was so honored when they made the trip all the way to Iceland for my first wedding and when I finally made it to Australia to visit them both two years ago I got such a warm welcome. Through the years Marion always made sure to keep in touch by sending a Christmas letter. For over 30 years she made sure we stayed in touch and when we met again I could feel I was still very much in their hearts.
    Dear Ian, Judith and families, you must have so many wonderful memories of them that I hope will live in your hearts for the years to come. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of grief.
    All my love, Margret

  9. Often regret and wish I had an opportunity to know my Grandmother Marion more, but from the stories my mother has told us, I know what she meant to her and the rest of her family and friends. Glad to at least be a small part of keeping her memory alive and hope those who knew her best remember the best times through this process and for years to come.

  11. To Judith and Ian and families my deepest condolences.
    I was very sad for your family to hear of your mother’s passing.
    Marion was a truly beautiful and gracious woman. She was always cheerful and caring, ready for chat. Over the years she always stayed in touch and could make you feel as if your last conversation was only last week! I’m sure all her friends will miss her.
